It’s of little surprise that Minecraft is performing well on the Playstation 3 as sales of the hit sandbox title also continue to rise for the Xbox 360 and PC editions of the game. 4J Studios is also currently developing next-gen versions of Minecraft for release on the Xbox One and PS4.

Minecraft: PS3 Edition is now available as a digital-only download via the PS Store. The game beat out other digital releases such as Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, and Grand Theft Auto V to become the top selling PS3 game on the PS Store for the month of January.

Developer 4J Studios is also working on Skin Pack 1 for the PS3 version of Minecraft. The DLC add-on is planned to bring new avatar skins based upon popular Sony characters.
